I actually don't. As a matter of fact it's a bit aggravating to me that most (if not all) Capcom 2D arcade ports on Saturn run in their orginally glorious arcade 240p (320p?) resolution, only to mess it all up by having the screen image zoomed in. It hurts everytime I play XvsSF on the system :-(
Tho i'll admit, it's still WAY better than the 480i res that Alpha Anthology runs on, i'll give you that.
Alpha 1 on Anthology has a CPS1 remix option that I actually prefer even more. And i'd agree with you on Alpha 2 IF Capcom allowed the option to select the original CPS2 soundtrack or Remix track much like they did with A1, but they didn't. Anthology is the only home port to carry over the original arcade soundtrack in A2 which I find more authentic. Mind you I was exposed to the game at local arcade halls as a kid.
The only extra modes not carried over to A3 in Anthology are the World Tour Mode and Final Battle Mode. Is that it? Yeah i can live without the latter :lol:
Can't argue on the sublime Saturn controller. I'd be more of an issue if I didn't play on stick.
Yes! No loadtimes are wonderful. Even more awesome if you choose the in-game feature to install into your HDD. No loading even when exiting to the main game selection screen and going into whatever game you wanna play from there.
Yes!!! You sir get a +1 in my book.
The dip switch setting is perhaps the single most important feature this collection has. With it, you can literally alter and modify all the games to play in any official revision Capcom released during each of these games respective run on CPS2 arcade. Alpha 1 in particular went throught some damn subtle (yet important) revisions to fix how much of broken game it turned out to be even after its final rev.
I wish more re-releases of old school arcade games had such a feature.

About the street fighter games, after thinking last night for a while I own the 2d powerhouse called the sega Saturn. It would be a shame for me as an owner to not own the 2d fighters. Right now as for funding for my games I still need to pay off nightmare for the everdrives for my Genesis and snes so I'm thinking like I said I gotta wait for march or April. I waited this long for a Saturn. Lets just hope I get as lucky as I did last year.

Who the hell is is this "nightmare"?
JK, it's a cool nickname :wink:
Agreed about the controller (as most do). One day, I plan to learn playing on a stick (on my bucket list), but I just can't give up the Saturn controllers. Even the original US Saturn pad is pretty awesome IMO.
Of course, I also play Anthology with a Saturn pad via a controller adapter. Works pretty well.

I will play Street Fighter sequels on any system that can candle the game (NES, SMS, C64, need not apply :wink: )

New to the racket-boy forums have a pretty nice collection for the Saturn(Panzer Dragoon Saga, Dragonforce, Magical Knight Rayearth, The legend of Oasis, and some others). Unfortunately I don't have a good memory card and I don't have the time to play through some of my collection in one sitting. Pretty neat story how i got the collection, the Saturn wasn't even on my radar before i got it. Have had a lot of fun with some of the other games in my collection and what I've played of those with longer stories.

You do know that you can replace the system battery yes? (CR2032 flat round battery).
Won't hold your save forever (and a somewhat limited space, especially for Dragon force), but if you leave your system plugged in, it will last a few months at least.
Otherwise, the official memory cart is worth the $30-something you'll spend on it.

Oh, and if you got those games for free or next to nothing, I hate you (just kidding...but seriously :P ).

I fired up Shinobi Legions last night. Is this game really really difficult or am I just bad at games? It might be the latter cuz I feel as though I've made this same comment a lot lately. :lol:

That game is difficult. I haven't finished it yet.

The level in the building with the lifts you can cut and the spears in the ground is a pain in the ass.

I hear the PAL soundtrack is considered way better for the game. How was the US one?

I wasn't aware that they had differing soundtracks. I can't say that I noticed this one as being "awesome" or "terrible." So whatever that means.

From what I understand it was pretty much entirely redone for the PAL release to make it sound more like Revenge of Shinobi. The US and Japanese games share the original soundtrack.
